While jumping the battery to a 2000 saturn sl1 the cables were crossed. the owner stated he left it on for 5- 10 seconds until it started smoking and it melted the ground wire terminal. the car turns over but does not start. the electrical inside of the car works except for the gauges. two fuses were replaced in the dashboard with no results. can you tell what all i should check for to trouble shoot it please?

My car isn't turning over I think it's either the starter or the battery. Isn't the positive battery cable connected to the starter? All I hear is a clicking sound when I turn it over and it...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If that's the case then the starter is surely faulty that's why you hear a tick sound but be sure that the battery has a good charge. If the battery is strong and it still fails to start then surely is a starter problem. But if it starts on a new battery then the old battery is worn out and needs replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2000 saturn sl1 - No power to car with key in or out. Put jumper cables on and not even the interior light came on. Fusible link maybe?


First check your positive battery cable. I have seen, especially on the Saturn, where the positive cable gets corroded through the cable and will not allow any power through it. Also check all fuses in the fuse box under the hood, especially the large green 30 amp fuses. If that does not help then check the fusible link between the starter and the alternator. I have seem some of those fail, but usually the car still had power.

My 1999 saturn SL1 would not start w/o a jump. Then it began to start rather roughly now when i turn the ignition all i hear is 'electricity'. i have to get a jump to get it going


Sounds like you need to replace the battery. However you may have another issue and that could be your alternator. If the alternator is not recharging your battery while the car is running, then a new battery is going to die as well.

1998 Saturn SL1 won't start

Absolutely no power


Reversing the jumper cables for that long a time can ruin the alternator, that would cause the no charging problem. The battery itself might be "smoked" considering it was in its weakest state when the wires were crossed, the plates may be damaged. Using a battery charger and a voltmeter charge overnight and see if the voltage is 14 volts and holding after the charger is removed. If not the battery is suspect and needs to be tested (Advance Auto Parts Store). There may possibly be a fusible link blown but doesn't sound like it from your information.

Saturn 2000 SL1 - 4 cylinder - won't start - we have changed the crank shaft positioner and car still does not start. There is no power to start the fuel pump. Fuel pump checks out good. Fuel pump not...


Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, or won't start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too
